These trees work like the slotted house of cards. We cut two identical tree shapes from card stock. Find the vertical midpoint on each. Cut a straight line up the middle to that point on one tree. Cut straight down through the midline to the midpoint on the other tree. Slot them together. You might be lucky and have them stand on their own. We made stabilizer stands for them.
Those plans were not well worked out in my head. Make an interlocking low box/frame/fence using 4 strips of card stock and the same slit/cut method. The tree trunk will join with the fence in this same manner but across the middles of each strip. This is where all measuring gets tricky and I don't have diagrams to show you. Until I do, you might have to think of this as a puzzle to solve! Solutions and diagrams etc welcome,

A student brought in an acrylic painting as a present. It is a sunset with clouds, water, grass, and 'stems', (or trunks-?). These 'stems' look to me like five crows watching the sunset.

First practice was to just look at the dark area and color that in without outlines. We did that twice.
Then we roughed in a freehand grid and mapped out the school house. For color reference they were on their own since I had not brought in any color pics.
I see now, but barely, that this roof is NOT in a pyramid shape as I had told class. It is a hip roof though.

I made a video last year of my making crepes, (just the crepes). But I don't know how to get it to my YouTube. It's long, (26 minutes), and maybe not good 'public stuff'. This is the link in my gdrive:
